Those of you who have read [livejournal.com profile] crevette's LJ know she is a wonderful woman and a fantastic, fearless writer, who regularly has me on the floor laughing (strawberry-scented elegance! uterus memos!). She is also an intensely giving person who has done the 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk (in honor of a friend who survived it) and now goes out every year to cheer on the participants and hand out popsicles. She's the sort of friend who not only brings you a homemade batch of Italian Wedding Soup when you're recovering from an ailment -- she takes your kid and teaches her to make meatballs so you can get some rest, too.

Like me -- like many of us -- [livejournal.com profile] crevette has struggled with weight problems (and their attendant health problems) all her adult life. We've both done the weight loss dance before, and we've both fallen hard off the wagon at times.

Earlier this year, on a whim, she decided to enter a contest to win free lap-band surgery with the follow-up counseling and therapy that will help her achieve a more healthy life. She thought she’d never get a response -- but to her surprise, she’s one of six finalists.

Please (please please please PLEASE) click here and vote for Irene F (under “Dr. Jessee’s patients”). And thanks.
